Here is our weekly seafood recipe! This week we are showing you just how easy it is to make a traditional Louisiana Seafood Gumbo using Denicola's Gumbo Mix!
· 1 package of Denicola’s Gumbo Mix
· 2 ½ quarts of water or chicken stock
· Seafood of choice – we use 1 pound of shrimp, raw & peeled, 1 pack of Gumbo crabs (4-5) or 1 pound of lump crabmeat and one pint of oysters.
· 1 stick of butter (optional)
· Steamed white rice
Combine Denicola’s Gumbo mix with water or stock in a large pot, stir and bring to a boil. Cover pot and lower heat to medium low and cook for 30 minutes.
Raise heat and bring to a boil, then add shrimp, crab & oysters. Reduce temp to simmer, cover and let gumbo cook on low for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
For additional richness add a stick of real butter to the pot after it has been simmering for 15 - 20 minutes.
Serve over white rice!
Additional sides: Potato salad, French bread, white wine, File’ powder (check out this blog on how to make your own File')!
